Crochet an Eevee

IMG_8448

Gotta catch ‘em all! Whip up a crocheted Eevee, and it’s sure to be a hit. Made with worsted weight yarn, this finished doll measures approximately 7 inches tall, with the ears.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed:

Any worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in café latte and aran.

G (4mm) crochet hook

Poly-fil

Yarn needle

16mm safety eyes

Black embroidery thread

Stitch markers

Dark brown felt

Wire pet brush (optional)

 

This pattern is worked “in-the-round”, and stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted.
